My daughter actually tested negative several times to some things as a baby despite reacting to them and then went on to test positive with low numbers. With egg for example her IgE was about 1.2, but she failed the in office food challenge with the initial dose of egg powder before the real food. She also tests positve with 1.92 and 1.98 to mustard and banana but just a tiny pin prick amount of her first taste of mustard her lip swelled up like a duck, and with 1/4 of a banana the same. Her...
Yes, we've been seeing allergists since she was 6 or 9 months old. We have moved a couple of times and had to switch allergists and it can be confusing, some say lip swelling alone is anaphylaxis, what she had with banana and mustard, and some say it's not. It's hard when allergist's don't agree.

For this one I have to avoid peanut, tree nuts, egg, shellfish, fish, wheat, soy, oat, barley, beans, lentils, sesame. for my 1 year old boy all of the above and fresh banana so far. With holding all new foods for him until more tests are done.
Just received our newest allergy test back. In addition to her other allergies she is also now allergic to banana, cashew, pecan, sunflower, pistachio and sesame. We add these to the egg, peanut, dairy, soy, oat and carrot from the first test.
Thank you, Kathy. I will watch it in the morning. Some we have clearly had reactions to. Others it is unknown as she has had issues since birth and had been placed on a restricted diet from literally the get go. The testing was started after a hospitalization in an attempt to try to figure out what was causing her problems. The banana and nuts (other than peanut) are new adds as of results received today. I have not been given the values and likely won't see them until our upcoming appointment.
My son never was able to peel an orange without an allergic reaction, though he could eat it. Years later he can now peel an orange with no problems. He still can't have citrus rind in foods though. He use to react to banana peels but could eat the banana. I wonder if it had anything to do with what sprays they use in the fields. I also find that a lot of orange juice is made on shared equipment with dairy. Sending hugs your way.
